Nathan Delfouneso believes he still has a lot to give after joining Stanley on a short-term contract.

The 31-year-old has been without a club since he was released by Bolton Wanderers over the summer.

Delfouneso had a spell on loan at Burnley from Aston Villa during the 2010/11 Championship season, scoring in a 1-0 win against Hull City on his debut.

He also had a stint at Rovers during the 2015/16 season, scoring two goals in 16 matches for the Ewood Park club.

The experienced forward also made more than 200 appearances across several spells with Blackpool and spent the second half of last campaign on loan at League Two Bradford City, playing six times in total for the Bantams.

Delfouneso told the club’s YouTube channel: "Being a free agent, I have been doing a lot of work myself but it gets to the point where you need to try and get into a club.

“Luckily enough, I knew one of the players here. He asked a question and I was able to come in and train and here we are.”

He added: “I have been in the game a long time but I have still got a lot to do in the game and I can pass on my experience to the younger players.

"I have a lot left in me after a difficult past 18 months, I am eager and motivated and itching to get going and produce what I know I can.

"I am good and happy and hopefully I can show my teammates and the fans what I can do. I am here to help the team and push them up the league."

The Reds are currently 17th in the League One table, having picked up 10 points from their opening nine matches since the start of the new campaign.

John Coleman explained: "With the injury crisis we have, we had the opportunity to make a short-term addition.

"He has plenty of experience and hopefully he will give the lads a lift in the attacking department.

"It gives Nathan an opportunity, he lives locally and it ticks boxes for both parties and hopefully he can hit the ground running."
